D-I RC2 -- Call for testing

The second upload of the 2.6.18-4 kernel is now available and is used in 
all [1] daily built images of Debian Installer. 
We are not completely sure if there will be one more kernel upload for 
Etch or not; if there is, it should only have relatively minor changes.

All D-I components have been uploaded as well, including the last 
translation updates.

You can help the release of Etch by testing the current *daily built* 
images for your favorite architecture(s); these are available from [2].

Please report any issues you find by filing an installation report [3]. 
Reports of successful installs, especially for non-English installs and 
architectures other than i386/amd64 are welcome as well.
Note: please compress large attachments!

For installs in other languages than English, please check if the 
localization of the installed system is correct.

Note that at the moment D-I will still install the "old" 2.6.18-3 kernel 
to the new system. This will change automatically when the 2.6.18-4 
kernel images and linux-latest migrate to testing.

We are currently waiting for the 2.6.18-4 kernel to migrate to testing 
before we can start to also migrate D-I components, and build, upload 
and release D-I RC2.

Thanks in advance,
Frans Pop

[1] With one exception: arm currently still uses the 2.6.18.dfsg.1-9
    upload; the latest upload should be available in arm images tomorrow.
